2017 Elections

Upcoming Primary Election for State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Feb. 21

We strongly encourage our members to take the time to read the voter guide created by the Wisconsin Public Education Network.

The candidates – incumbent Tony Evers, Lowell Holtz, John Humphries and Rick Melcher – were posed questions about their qualifications and experience as well as their positions on key issues facing public education in Wisconsin, including school vouchers, charter schools, changes in school funding, and the teacher shortage.

According to WPEN, the candidate questionnaire “was developed by a representative group of public education advocates from around the state, and by members of the Wisconsin Alliance for Excellent Schools Board of Directors.”  The candidates’ responses are listed in their entirety.  The voter guide may be accessed by clicking here.

The Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, February 21 and the Spring Election on Tuesday, April 4.
